The Community Fort Belvoir, VA
Fort Belvoir is an Army post on the Potomac River in Fairfax
County, Virginia. It's a large post that's divided into three main
areas: the main post, Davidson Army Airfield, and Fort Belvoir
North. Settled on land that was once a plantation, and founded
during World War I, Fort Belvoir originally served as a training
school for the U.S. Army Engineers. Now, nineteen agencies and
numerous divisions, battalions, and commands use Fort Belvoir as
their operating headquarters. A short 35-minute drive north from
the fort and you'll find yourself in the ever-historical Washington
DC, where you can spend a captivating morning paddling on the
Potomac River, an afternoon spent roaming the halls of a
Smithsonian Museum, an evening enjoying one of DC's iconic sports
teams and finish off with a monumental meal at the Michelin-starred
restaurant. This is the opportunity to be had when in Fort Belvoir,
Virginia; and that's just if you head north! Head south and you'll
follow along the Potomac River where you can partake in all the
pleasures to be had on the water from fishing, to swimming, water
boating and the like.
